Have you suffered a heart attack during a surgery?
Or have you had a loved one pass away due to a heart attack during a surgery?
If you have answered yes to either of the above questions, more than likely you have more questions and you are looking for answers.
With surgery comes associated risks, that’s a given.
However, just because there are risks it does not follow that a doctor can needlessly endanger a patient.
For example, if a patient is going in for a surgery and there are issues present with their heart which creates red flags in the patient’s chart, it may be a good idea to speak with the patient about delaying the surgery.
Or let’s say the doctors do not do a good job reviewing the patient’s history of medications and the patient has an allergic reaction to the anesthesia and suffers a heart attack during the surgery.
In these types of situations, and many more, an argument can be made that the doctor is needlessly endangering their patient.
